Irina Werning: Back To The Future Portraits
- By: Chaz Curry
What started as a personal project has become an Internet sensation: In the series, “Back To The Future,” adults recreate their own childhood photos. And almost overnight, photographer Irina Werning has gone from shooting friends and family to NFL superstar Chris Cooley.
“It’s either a picture that really strikes me visually or … a picture that speaks about the person, or has some gesture that I want to re-create in that person — that I think I can bring back to life. It’s quite instant when I fall in love with a picture.” – Irina Werning
